Wayward Words!

This is my first piece created as one of the DT for the Haunted Design House Macabre Monday challenge, yay me!
The challenge this week is Wayward Words and we'd like to see a piece that focuses on the text. Remember, this challenge is specifically for all of the goth princesses out there who have a penchant for the dark, creepy and ghoulish. Do you have a dark side? We'd love it if you came and shared your creations with us :D
I made a postcard for this week, using the 3 Big Cats stamp from StampItCrazy. I made up the ditty to go with the cats and fir into the current Magic challenges, and the font is called A Lolita Scorned, available from
These are the challenges that I had in mind when creating this card:
Sunday Postcard Art - magic
The Burtonesque Dolls - black and white
Moving Along With The Times - sketch + animals
Dare U2 Digi Stamp - stitching
Stampin' B's Design Challenge - focus on the sentiment
Some Odd Girl - spots stripes and a big title
Stamp Something - go digital
Lots to Do - stitching
Stamp Scrap and Doodle - animals
Mami Doodles - anything goes

Hi Susan
Lovely to see your crafty cats postcard (I have two, one black and his brother is dark brown). These look more menacing though. Love the way you have made your own sentiment to fit the image.
Thankyou for sharing your fab creation with us at MAWTT and entering our challenge.
Luv Brenda xxx
